's success in, quote, forning a new majority to create a more perfect union. governor palin, your thoughts on that? >> the path towards a more perfect union is our constitution. i think that we have seen examples of our president not necessarily following the constitution. in fact, wanting to change the constitution because he sees it as a charter of negatives. and he has made statements in the past about his view of our constitution and that's -- you know, following it is a blueprint toward a more perfect union. but time magazine, i think there is some irrelevancy. their list of the most influential people in the country and the world, some who have made that list -- yours truly! that ought to tell you something regarding the credence we should give time magazine. >> that's an interesting concept. but it's funny, in looking at the president's choice, he was chosen before and first elected. but, you know, the thing that strikes me is that -- if time magazine says this goofy stuff about whatever their criteria is for seeking amid great adversity a more perfect union. that's not the presiden

something to put in my state of the union did he put something in the answer that jake tapper was entitled to ask. >> i do think that was a pretty good response from obama. he has been a pretty busy guy. but we also all know taking on the nra is a tough thing. it risks a lot of political capital, and the votes probably aren't there. haven't been there for the last four years, still may not be there now incredibly enough. but now he knows he has to act. as for the timeline, i was impressed, actually. when i got up and read the headlines and saw that he was appointing a task force i rolled my eyes and thought, oh boy, six months later where is this going to leave us? this is going to miss the moment. but as he spoke, he was very resolute. he had the specific three proposals that you alluded to in your opening and he sounded just very resolved, and january is a strict timeline. i would count it still as striking while the iron is hot. i was impressed by the end of that performance. >> eliot: yes, i agree with each of the points you just made. i think an open question for me is will the vice p

cigarette stocks. as we previewed last night, the european union today proposed bigger health warnings on cigarette packages and a complete ban on strong flavors like menthol. philip morris shares dropped 2.1%. it is the world's biggest cigarette maker measured by revenue. in the dow, some analysts concerns hit shares of general electric and alcoa. g.e. fell hard, down 3.1%. investment bank u.b.s. removed the stock from its favored list thinking earnings growth will slow. alcoa dropped 3%. moody's put the company's credit rating on review for possible downgrade, thanks to falling aluminum prices. fighting against the weak market was oracle. the database software reported a strong quarter last night. and shares responded, jumping 3.7%, taking t stock to its highest price since the spring of 2011. digital storage stocks rebounded. western digital was up four percent. seagate technology increased 3.3%. both received positive analyst comments. fed-ex delivered earnings that were down from a year ago, but still stronger than anticipated. the drop from a year ago was blamed on customers usin
neighborhood services and northeast credit union. we would not only provide some free assessments by certified access specialists that would come out here to the commercial corridors like irving, like noriega and taraval in our investment neighborhood strategies, they would offer these free assessments that would do the inspection and allow the small businesses to understand what all the challenges are. so, it begins with that assessment. and then with the monies that we do have, we wanted to follow-up with our sf shines programs and other programs that we have and offer a combination of grants and micro lending loan programs that are available to these businesses so they can make the corrections in an affordable way. this is our city's attempt, it is fully supported by the board of supervisors, and this program i think now has its ability to be launched and have -- really meet these access challenges in a positive way. so, we're not just avoiding lawsuits. i think we do want everybody business to be compliant, as they should be. but we're caught up sometimes with businesses that change hands.

it was admitted to the union. but senator inouye's tradition of service began long before he came to the united states senate . he was just a boy when he heard the war planes over oahu, saw the bombs drop on pearl harbor, and ran to give aid to the wounded. he was still a teen when he volunteered to serve this nation overseas even though his people have been declared enemy aliens. and i'm reminded looking at secretary norm mineta here who served in one of those internment camps. senator inouye became a member of the famed 442nd reg mental combat team, the most highly decorated unit in the history of the united states military. that says it all. after being gravely wounded in italy, senator inouye's arm was amputated. he spent 21 months recuperating from his wounds in an army hospital in michigan. there he met a lifetime friend, future majority leader bob dole, another young g.i. who had been also wounded in the european theater. senator dole told senator inouye he planned to go to law school and eventually serve in congress. dan inouye was elected to congress in 1959 as hawaii's first congressm
